Healthy competition can inspire children to do their best and grow their thirst for learning. When children compete they can become more inquisitive, research independently, and learn to work with others. They will strive to do more than is required. Grounded within our Growth Mindset and Achievement for All principles, promoting positive values for learning, competition can teach invaluable lessons for our children that builds upon and expands the learning in the classroom. These skills prepare children for future situations of all kinds. Whether it’s moving to secondary school, determining a future career, or finding a cure for cancer, participating in a variety of competitions or projects can develop the skills to think creatively, which means we will: grow together and inspire each other to achieve our full potential as courageous lifelong learners.
